You Started Cloning Your Existing Clothes And Hacking Commercial Patterns

BUT you were limited to the clothes and patterns you had, and you found it difficult to achieve the exact style you wanted.

That’s Why You Started Learning Pattern Making From Books

BUT you have spent long hours writing by hand using calculations to get a simple basic pattern. It didn’t fit because you don’t have an average body shape like anyone else, so you had to figure out how to adapt it with modifications.

You took Pattern Making Classes

BUT It’s so exhausting to make basic blocks for each type of garment for weeks before learning transformations like dart manipulations to create the desired style. And finally, you found pattern making too complicated and time-consuming.

But wait - Here’s a bold question for you:

What if you could stop spending time drafting basic blocks by hand..

and instead, have a system that allows you to easily and quickly create unique custom patterns so you could spend more time on the creative part?

Sounds too good to be true? Keep reading and I’ll show you exactly how!

I’ll be honest with you:

Getting to this point wasn’t easy

When I started as a graduate textile designer, I made custom clothes for customers, wedding gows, wedding dresses. I drafted basic blocks for each client from scratch, but it didn’t bother me as I had no family and children. I had time and that was the normal way. 🙅‍♀️

👉Then I started working as an in-house designer and had to learn how to use pattern making software to help pattern makers where I never created any pattern from scratch anymore. We used basic patterns from the pattern library to turn them into the desired style.🎉🙏

But then...

 

When I wanted to make clothes for myself or for private customers, I had to go back to hand drafting my basic blocks. I was working full-time, my daughter was born, and I had so little time to sew. I looked for pattern-making software but they were so expensive and designed for the industry so I couldn’t afford it. So, at some point

😔 I quit sewing for years😔

I didn’t make any new patterns.❌

So I tried...

❌ to buy patterns, but they never fit and are not suitable for selling patterns or clothes using them.

❌ to look for CAD software, but they started at $1000-1500 that time.

❌ a pattern making tool, Tailornova that I found online and looked fabulous, but the result wasn’t what I expected. I didn’t finish the jumpsuit that I created with it and forget it absolutely.

I said to myself: There must be a simpler way to do it and make it work, even for people who are not professionals.

finished DIY jumpsuit

And that's when it hit me!

About a year later, I looked for my forgotten, unfinished jumpsuit and gave it another try. I realized that even it wasn’t perfect, I could make it work. And I loved the result.

And I thought there must be other online sewing pattern maker websites to create templates that you can edit and work well

arrow down grey

I’ve done a lot of tests and figured out how to use Tailornova properly.

I found a few other pattern generators online and started testing them too.

I discovered what works with each tool and what are the weak points, so now I know exactly what online pattern maker to use for each type of garment.

I’ve never drafted a basic pattern by hand again from scratch.

I’ve finally found an affordable cloud base CAD program.

THE BEST THING?

This saves me so much time and energy!

This saves me so much time and energy! (That I can spend time on pattern tranformations and creating my own clothes quickly in a fun way)

Success Stories

5/5
What made the Buddy Positive Program stand out from other options is that it includes every piece of clothing you can wear. After taking the Program I feel confident designing a garment I like by using the online pattern making tools. I found the live Q&A sessions are great! They are essential to follow the course. What made me happiest about joining the courses is to add essential pieces of clothing of my measurements and taste to my wardrobe. I’ve got a better knowledge of altering pattern pieces and of checking measurements. Apart from learning a lot, the course will enhance your drafting and sewing skills.

— Ellie

5/5

The most important thing I learned in the course is using online pattern tools to design and assemble patterns and garment construction. I found the live Q&A sessions are very useful. I made a lot of progress. I actually got some garments completed. What surprised me about the course the most is the usefulness of online pattern making software. Since starting the course I think I can assemble most any garment with time and practice. I learned to organize my sewing studio to optimize pattern assembly, cutting pattern pieces, and sewing garments together.

— Freddy

5/5

What made me happiest about joining the course is to have my capsule collection and to have the teacher’s help at any time. I found the live Q& A sessions are an ideal and very relaxed space to present any kind of doubt without fear of making a mistake. I felt very confident thanks to the support of the teacher. Since starting the course I have been able to put my ideas in order and make a meaningful and original collection. What surprised me the most is the kind of fabric design. And Agnes’s availability and involvement to resolve any doubts at any time. Since starting the course my sewing and pattern making process has been becoming more confident and having clearer and clearer ideas and a better sense of what I want to do.

FAQs

You've got questions? I have answers!

The course will begin after you sign up and you can complete it at your own pace. The modules will be published every month, but feel free to take the course at your own pace. Students usually spend at least two weeks in a module.

You have excess of class materials such as video lessons, the private chat group and downloadable files still you remain a paying member.

If in the first 7 days you think it’s not right for you, you can cancel your purchase. You’ve got 7 days to get a refund.

Yes, no pattern drafting experience is required. You will learn everything you need to start creating patterns.

Yes, twice a month, you can participate in online question and answer sessions where I will answer all your questions in addition to the  group chat.

This course focuses on pattern making, but in most modules you will find video lessons that show the entire process from the pattern making, cutting and sewing the garments. There are also specific sewing tutorials such as sewing different pockets or button plackets, button holes and invisible zippers.

If you like your pattern making process, probably not, however if you want to learn how to make patterns with online pattern making tools by a few clicks you are very welcome to the program. I have tested these tools for years, so I’ll share what works and what does not so that it can save time on the process of trial and error. For beginners, I recommend designing simple clothes, but as you are more experienced you can make more complex and challenging styles for your capsule collection.

Some of the tools you can use for free, others will cost you a few dollars per custom pattern made based on your measurements. With these tools, you will create nine different basic patterns then you can create countless new patterns from them for free using your new pattern making skills.

A laptop or computer, stable internet connection, somewhere to print your patterns and a sewing machine and serger if you have one. Also large size tissue paper, rulers, measuring tape and other common sewing tools.

It’s not necessary to use a serger, but it makes your workflow much easier and gives your finished garment a much more professional look. If you want to make clothes for sale I strongly recommend you get one. Maybe you could find a second-hand one.

Due to the lack of bespoke men’s designs available at the moment, we are focusing on women’s clothes however there is a possibility to create shirts and T-shirts for men with the tools we use.
